52 CCT #23 and Welcome to two new Members

Wow - I have two new members - so nice to see you two! I am glad to see my membership growing, even without the lure of a blog candy.... Ladies, you made my day!

I want to welcome 


Caroline - sorry I can't find a link, but I will happily add it, if you let me know :)

I have a welcome picture for you:

It is showing glass art by Dale Chihuly, an American glass artist, who did an exhibit in the Bronx Botanic Garden in 2006. This foto is taken at dusk, there was a light rain and the colors were just amazing, with pink clouds reflecting in the lily pond and the glass among the lotus seedpods. I was so fascinated by this exhibit I went there three times. So have plenty of pictures to share....Perhaps I'll show you some more some other time - I guess more members need to join ;)


I have not played with 52 CCT in a while - there are just too many challenges out there, impossible to play them all. But I am still in full Christmas mode, so I was checking out Christmas challenges and this one just appealed to me with its clean inspiration picture:

I pulled out my Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland set, did some generational stamping and also stamped on vellum toget the birch trees in different shades. The deer are stamped on the card stock, but overlaid with vellum, to make them look like they are further away. 

Kim from Art Keeps Me Sane inspired me with THIS card, where she also used vellum to stamp and amazing tree scene.

The sentiment is Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings. I used an EK success border punch, some Stickles and a seam binding bow.

I hope you like it - I wanted to thank you about all your comments and your time to visit. I have not done this in a while, which doesn't mean I am not grateful. Thank you again and enjoy your evening!

Please stop by tomorrow for the Canine Cancer Awareness blog hop.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
